Eighth Grade Pollinator Research

In our focus on pollinator problems this year, we have chosen to focus on the resources bees need to live and pollinate effectively.  We recently learned that the bee population is declining due to lack of food sources.  We spent some flex time researching flowers native to Ohio, and different blooming season of these flowers.  We hope to include some of these plants on our St. Joe’s campus to support our local bee population.  The students spent some time analyzing an aerial view of our grounds and we discussed possible areas for new flowers to be planted, and a water source implemented.
